Recent Reads Mini Reviews

More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks!

Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes

Evvie Drake Starts Over

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: June 25, 2019

DNF @ 54%

This was fine, but I was so utterly bored I couldn’t bring myself to finish this even though I finished half of this story. Its forgettable, and frankly I don’t care what happens.

This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens

This Time Next Year

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: August 1, 2020

I listened to this in one sitting yesterday and completely forgot to update this. It was a fun, quick story. I liked the relationships and how it developed slowly and all the family interactions were great. A cute story with a unique premise.

How to Fail at Flirting by Denise Williams

How to Fail at Flirting

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: November 5, 2019

What a cute and fun story that I was not expecting to hit me so hard. Naya and Jake are such a great, fun-loving couple who are adorable. I wasn’t expecting Naya’s past experience with an abusive relationship but it was devastating.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

About Tomorrow by Abbi Glines

About TomorrowRating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: December 14, 2020

I thought this was okay. There were parts that really grabbed me -like the chemistry between Sailor and Cade, and the addictive angst. But I dont think the dual timeline was very effective here, yes it gave of glimpses of their past romance to help inform their shared history but there just wasn’t enough to be impactful. I also think the final tension shot before the resolution was such a lazy gimmick and just made me roll my eyes instead of being invested in the story.

So a bit more on the disappointing side,, but nothing too bad..
